I have pimples problem, my body is too heat. Due to that heat in my body big pimples are coming on my face. I have smoking habit daily (2-3). Is this causes any effect in my body for generating heat. How to control heat in my body to reduce pimples on my face.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Pimples are not caused by heat. They are called Acne.Acne is the common cause of spots. Most people with acne are aged between 12 and 25 but some older and younger people are affected. Boys are more commonly affected than girls. Acne usually affects the face but may also affect the back, neck and chest. The severity can range from mild to severe. About 8 in 10 teenagers develop some degree of acne. Often it is mild. However, it is estimated that about 3 in 10 teenagers have acne bad enough to need treatment to prevent scarring. Untreated acne usually lasts about 4-5 years before settling. However, it can last for many years in some cases. This is due to the hormonal changes of puberty which stimulate the sebaceous glands. As a rule, the more sebum that you make, the more greasy your skin feels and the worse acne is likely to be

Hello I want to get out of anxiety. I am very much scared of suffocation. Worthlessness. I want to die I feel but I dont want to.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly. Take care.

I get angry at small things and cant control it. I even get violent once angry. I wish I could control my angle but I cant.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Anger is a healthy emotion if expressed in an appropriate manner. It helps to protect your personal boundaries and indicates that some of your needs are not being met. Your anger over small issues suggests that you have become habitual to it and need anger management. When you get angry and violent then you are suppressing someone else by showing your power and that is counter productive and anti social behaviour. Please take counselling sessions to take control of your anger.

Dear , you should be able to distinguish between clinical depression and disappointment. Disappointment also manifests symptoms that resembles depression, including sleeplessness. Were you disappointed in the near past? I think one or two telephone counseling sessions with me should provide you with insight to your problem and tips to over come it. Please let me know if you are willing for telephone counseling session. Take care.

It happens due to dissatisfaction in the matters of life and relationships with you and her children. Please make it a point to spend quality couple time with her and let her feel comfortable. No need to prove that she is feeling wrong. Also if needed make a direct contact with an expert in relationship and Psychotherapist for having an open interaction, guidance, support and Psychotherapy if needed. If severity is more then even medicines can be advised. One to one meeting with expert either online or in person, either me or anyone nearby would work wonders.

Hellolybrate-user, first of all you need to get your eyesight checked. The symptoms you have written can be caused by dry eyes, convergence weakness, or refractive errors. You can use a tear substitute and take more of green vegetables and fruits. Spend less time on screens (mobile n computer) if possible. If you have got refractive error please go for spectacles. Take care.

I have a lover who is interested in sexual videos and relations with strangers. His parent came to know about this and tried to inform me. For that reason he has beaten up them very badly and still lies to me and make me believe that they against him and trying to kill him. How can we all get him back normal? what should I do?

These type of persons are sexually manic persons, very rigid in their thoughts, implement their rules on others, doesnot listen to anyone. Thinks what they say is right nd are very manipulative by nature means their convincing power is very high. So be alert and dont indulge in any sexual activity with your lover .as I am afraid that these type of people r self centered and once they get what they want, they r out for next target. So dont be a target and avoid sexual contact and if you are seriously thinking of marriage with him, then avoid sex before marriage and once married all will be normal with your love and dedication.

I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
It is not part of ageing, it might very well be a part of depression. If this is a recent change of a few months, it makes depression even more likely. Please consult an expert to get this doubt clarified. Alternatively, let me know how long you have been having these problems, has there been similar instances in the past, is there similar history in the family and is there any family history of bipolar disorder. The good news is that your condition can be easily treated. But do not delay addressing these basic questions. Take care!

I am 36 year old male. I lost my father a month ago and undergoing some kind of depression. I really don't want to call it depression but somehow I am feeling very low at times. I also have this gastric problem due to which I get some pain in the chest and also burning in food pipe. Can you help me with solution to both the problems?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
You are grieving over your father's death and that is very natural because you were emotionally attached to him and he's been around you all these years. Give yourself time to feel better. Especially if you were attached, dependant on him in some ways to feel better and get along in life. His going away was definite but I don't know whether you were mentally and emotionally prepared for this eventuality. Since he has passed away, now remembering how he contributed to your life and what he stood for in life will help you to remember him and keep him close to your heart. Doing things in the way he expected you to do and adding your own unique touch will help to move the family legacy ahead. Life and death are a part of life. New life springs from the remains of the dead. That's the rule of the nature. Some spiritual and religious sermons and speeches too help people to connect with their loved ones and heal an aching longing to be with them. Some people read religious text, some see their friends, or family guru. You decide what is your way to find a space to talk about your thoughts and feel better. If you are finding it difficult to do all this on your own, then you could see a counsellor who will help you to manage this emotional time. You could get an unbiased space to voice out your concerns, fears, and any regrets from the past and what could be the best way forward now. Emotional upheavals bring stomach upsets with them. Our gut is very much linked to our emotional state. You seem to be anxious and that is causing acidity and gas. See a doctor and get it checked out. Don't miss meals and eat on time. Drink a lot of water to combat acidity. Take care.
